Hmm, just like some people think shorter gearing is better for FE, some people think taller gearing is better for going fast...

Anyway, how clean is that old tranny? I want a picture!

Accelerating fast, or top speed? Hmmm?

The photo at the top of this thread is the Actual Unit. I cleaned it up some since that photo, but it's still a little greasier than the box I took out.

Enough GS! must do some work today...

NOPE the top speed is achieved when the gearing allows the engine to reach maximum HP at or before it - the Geo I have is geared for redline at 130-135mph and it only reached that a few times HA just kidding terminal speed was 93.7mph GPS measured - speedo needle was straight down way past 85mph max . . . . still pretty good.

Yes, but we're not discussing top speed anyway, besides, my car is geared for a 210mph top speed but I'm not showing that off,

Ah...so that's how I managed it in Forsa for the XBox...(205+ mph CRX) - I basically tuned up an HF tranny.
